Imagine yourself as a manager of an agricultural operation located where many would classify as – the middle of nowhere. Energy for some of your onsite services comes from large propane tanks, while fuel for your tractors is provided by tanker trucks that traverse the area. Your harvested resources are stored in large hulls, some to be shipped out when full and replaced by empty hulls, while others are stationary and require frequent emptying. Now picture yourself visiting each of these assets in extreme temperatures to manually measure their product levels.
Cities, agricultural lands, remote environments (e.g., streams), and buildings are all examples of environments where IoT technology is transforming them into smart connected spaces. The main aspect they share is the large geographical areas they span. Additionally, these environments may also present challenges like limited wireless connectivity, installations in remote or difficult locations, and harsh operating conditions.
IoT and edge-cloud deployments can open up new possibilities to facilitate new business models and unlock societal benefits that serve the greater good. Rural environments in particular, are in need of a digital transformation that IoT and edge solutions can provide, but come with a number of challenges.
